Elmwood walks are for those who share a common interest in hill or mountain walking and are run as a group of friends, coming at our own risk, to enjoy together areas such as the mountains of the Lake District and North Wales.
People can bring along relatives, friends or work colleagues when they wish to. Parents can bring children who are up to, and equipped for, the walk that is planned.
Minimum requirements are: a reasonable level of fitness to go up and down steep slopes, a pair of boots particularly for ankle support and grip, appropriate clothing for hill walking, and effective wind and waterproof clothing to keep warm and safe in bad weather.
Winter walks are just for those who are experienced and well equipped for the severe conditions encountered.
We try to organise a walk approximately once every 3 weeks on a Saturday and leave early from Elmwood, to share lifts and get to car parks at our destination before they to fill up. We usually try to find a local café for coffee and cake before travelling home.
